Travel Mapping

Tracking Cumulative Travels

Welcome to Travel Mapping

Travel Mapping is a collaborative project implemented and maintained by a group of travel enthusiasts who enjoy tracking their cumulative highway travels. This site allows its users to submit lists of highway segments they've traveled on the highway systems that have been included in the project. Those lists are then imported into the project's database, to be included along with other users' stats and maps.

Travel Mapping Status (motd)

If the Travel Mapping site and forum become unavailable for any reason, watch for news on the project's GitHub pages informational site.
An upgraded disk has been installed on the server that houses TM and METAL. The site should now be back to normal, so please report any problems in this forum thread or by email to travmap@teresco.org
Travel Mapping is operating normally to the best of our knowledge.

Travel Mapping Highway Data

Travel Mapping currently includes highway data for 306 "active" systems. Active systems are those which we believe are accurate and complete, and for which any changes that affect users will be noted in the highway data updates table. An additional 120 systems are in "preview" status, which means they are substantially complete, but still undergoing final revisions. These may still undergo significant changes without notification. 13 more are in development but are not yet complete. These "devel" systems are not yet included in stats or plotted on user maps. Active systems encompass 43,987 routes for 1,120,801 miles of "clinchable" highways, and that expands to 67,898 routes for 1,516,538 miles when preview systems are included.

How to Participate

Anyone can submit their travels to be included in the site. Please see the information for how to create and submit your data.

Once your data is in the system, you will be listed on the main traveler stats page, and you can see a summary of your travels on your user page. Click around on the various links and table entries to find more ways to see your travels, both as tabular statistics and plotted on maps.

What's New with Highway Data?

Highway data is updated almost daily as corrections are made and progress is made on systems in development. When a highway system is deemed correct and complete to the best of our knowledge, it becomes "active". Here are the newest systems to become active, with their activation dates:
